Hello all,

Deco samples have been received of two liveries - Ermewa/Tarmac grey and Cemex Blue/grey.

These are on display today and tomorrow at DEMU Showcase exhibition in Swadlincote.



We are expecting livery samples of the remaining three liveries (EWS Constrcution, DB Red and Mendip Rail silver) next week.

Once all are approved we will be ready to close the order book and instruct the factory to commence production, probably in about a fortnight.

Cheers

Ben A.

Two weeks to order a rake, Iím going to be one broke modeler, and living with the dog in the dog house when SWMBO sees the bank statement!!

But Iíll have a cool looking train when she lets me back in.

Corrrr, look at those! Awesome. I only ordered a few to supplement a JGA rake, now tempted to chop in the JGAs and go all in on the HOAs!

Not my era, but stunning models, without a doubt.

Another feather in Revolution's cap!  :thumbsup:

then I can run them through the American layout at the club (at least that is what you told me it was at Warley when I showed you the pic of a Pendolino on the club layout)

cheers

Hi all,

That was quick!  While I was uploading these to NGF...



EWS Construction:


Cemex:


DB Red:


These three often run together...


The Ermewa Tarmac versions tend to run in block trains of the same type:


While the VTG/Mendip Rail versions usually run with each other and other Mendip wagons such as IIAs:


There are a few minor corrections to be made to the liveries, once these are approved then we will be in a position to close the order book and get them into production.

Thanks to all who have ordered already to get this project to this point - as each of our models has to pay for itself.

We do anticipate offering another modern freight vehicle in the Autumn, possibly at the N Gauge show, but are trying to pace our models to allow customers to afford as many as they need of each.

cheers

Ben A.
